MILES O'BRIEN, CNN ANCHOR: Let's get back to that story we've been telling you about all morning. Live pictures now from Palo Alto, California through the courtesy of some of our affiliates there as we look at what is turning out to be a standoff at the very least with a person operating a vehicle that was involved in a high speed chase beginning about 4:40 a.m. local time -- that's 7:40 Eastern Time -- just about three hours ago -- a little shy of that.

There's the vehicle. That's the Oldsmobile in question with Tennessee license plates. You'll note that the wheels don't have any ties affixed to them -- that's the result of the California Highway Patrol puncturing those tires at the tail end of this chase.

It began when a California Highway Patrol officer pulled up behind that vehicle. It appeared to be disabled. The vehicle took off. A chase ensued from the East Bay side, across the Bay Bridge into San Mateo down the 101 sometimes in excess of 100 miles an hour.

Finally the tires were punctured. The car has stopped but the driver and a passenger remain inside.

And we have been told by the authorities that there apparently was some gasoline spread by the driver. Beyond that we don't know much on that rather ominous point there.

A SWAT team has arrived on the scene we're told as we look at some pictures courtesy of our affiliate KGO. We see some movement in the car. We see a car that has been seemingly somewhat dismantled. Beyond that we don't know what the motivation is and we are obviously watching it very closely.
